5.0 out of 5 stars Those '70s Synth Sounds Make Me Smile 23 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another 'I remember when' review, but revisiting this album 38 years since first hearing it, I still have nothing but praise for it. From the opening 7-minute full version of Springsteen's Blinded By The Light until the closing Questions, are 7 tracks of the highest quality prog-infested MMEB. The compositions, shared by several band members, are generally thoughtful with a subtle attack free from pomp and bluster. Perhaps the wildest moment is Barbara Thompson's sax solo on Singing The Dolphin Through, a slow beautiful Mike Heron song that slips by serenely.
Like all the musicians' playing, Chris Thompson's singing is perfectly understated throughout, strong but without any theatrics or hysteria. On the instrumental Waiter, There's A Yawn In My Ear, the musicians cut loose (on the vinyl, this closed side one with style and gusto. There are no weak moments on this album which should be a fixture in every prog afficiando's collection. You should not need too many listens to love this masterpiece. This cd re-issue includes the bonus tracks of Spirits In The Night and the single edit of Blinded By The Light.
Oh, and those '70s synthesizer sounds make me smile with every listen.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Simply the best production on Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Simply magic from the first note to the last. Highly recommended not only to people who appreciate Manfred Mann but also to progressive rock and jazz rock fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manfred Mann but not as you know it! 1 Aug 2009
By google
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Had this album on vinyl which I loved to listen to but my sister took it back!!When I saw it on cd I was well happy and had to buy it. It is a mixture of tracks like 'Blinded by the Light' which most people know and are a little upbeat.Also 'Questions' which is lovely to listen to and lose yourself in the lyrics.So pleased I have my own copy now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well produced cheesiness, not stood the test of time
Okay - so that's a good version of Bruce's Blinded by The Light. Also, this is a band with a good history with an appreciation of Dylan and they have had some excellent tracks. Read more
